It’s true that while running in the rat race, we all are missing our minimum dietary requirements. And on the other hand, we are also exceeding our sugar, saturated fats, and sodium intake. This certainly adds to the problem of not eating the right kinds of food, and studies further show that our habit of snacking is one of the main culprits of unhealthy food habits. To encourage better healthy eating habits, what could be a better idea than healthy snacking at the workplace.
Happy Healthy Snacking @ Workspace
For many of us who spend most of our time at work, healthy workplace snacking not only help us stay healthy but also productive (as we work better when our stomach is full). Whether it’s the snacks to stash your office vending machine, desk, or something you bring to work to share, the below mentioned is the carefully curated list of food that can empower employees to make healthy snack choices.
Getting Nutty: Nuts/dry fruits such as almonds contain the goodness of fibre, protein, and vitamins. While there are numerous health benefits of having nuts, they also make us feel full. So go nuts about it!
Huff and Puff: Harvested puffed rice or organic chickpea puffs are low-calorie snacks that come in a variety of flavours. They are unadulterated and does not possess artificial colour or added preservative-packed predecessors.
Fruit Freeze: Not many workplaces offers a fresh fruit bowl in the pantry or breakroom. Fresh fruits are full of fibre and nutrients, but they can also get bad quickly. If you need fruit with more staying power, consider dehydrated apple or banana chips (roasted not fried.) You can also try frozen-dried fruits in your desk stack.
Getting Greeky: If your workplace has a fridge then try Greek yoghurt. They are a sweet morning/afternoon snack full of protein and calcium. Top it with some dry fruits for much-added crunch.
Better Bars: Post-lunch work afternoons can often wear you down. To remain attentive and focused, your hand automatically reaches for a candy bar. Rather than opting for sugar-loaded candies or crabs, consider swapping for granola or an energy bar. These healthy bars fulfil a variety of dietary needs, like protein and essential vitamins unlike the short term sugar high.
Not only are the above items perfect snack ideas for work meetings, but they’re also healthy snacks for work to lose weight and help you feel great.
